Cardboard Recycling Tips and Information
Break It Down
Cardboard is bulky and takes up a significant amount of space in your waste containers. The quicker your waste containers fill up, the more pickups your business pays for. Properly breaking down your business’ cardboard will reduce the number of pickups you need, thereby lowering waste costs.
Avoid Food Contamination
Some food containers like pizza boxes are made out of corrugated cardboard and can be recycled as new, but you should not recycle cardboard or other paper products if they have been contaminated with grease, oil or food.
Keep It Dry
Wet Cardboard tends to clog up the sorting machines used at recycling centers. Although, RoadRunner customers don’t have to worry about this because we provide the containers to separate!
What Makes It Strong?
Cardboard has arches in the fluted or corrugated paper that enable it to withstand pressure and impact.
Alternatives such as hemp can be used in order to create cardboard boxes without having to use trees.
Decrease Energy Consumption
According to industry group Recycle Across America, recycling cardboard only takes 75% of the energy required to make new cardboard.
